NTOA members have tested more than 2,000 products in real-world situations through the NTOA’s Member Tested and Recommended Program (MTRP) since 2003. Results of these tests are shared with the law enforcement community in The Tactical Edge magazine, NTOA online database, NTOA eNewsletters and the product manufacturers themselves. The MTRP logo is widely displayed on product packaging, ads and websites, and is regarded by many law enforcement agencies as paramount to their product purchasing decisions.
Starting in 2018, the logo rating scale is as follows: 3.00 – 3.99 receives the standard logo, 4.00 – 4.49 receives the silver logo, and 4.50 – 5.00 receives the gold logo. Manufacturers may use the logo on marketing materials, ads or websites for only the product
that earned the logo.
The VERY GOOD rating is given to products that "exceeds advertised specifications on a regular basis and outperforms others is usefulness and quality of workmanship". During a 60 day field test, the Seer S1621 was tested and scored in 12 of 13 rating categories by 4 qualified law enforcement field testers from Arizona, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Florida. All of the field testers rated the Seer S1621 with high marks.
For over 40 years, Seer Helmets has been producing and constantly improving upon our products based upon direct feedback from law enforcement officers. We listen to those that use our products on a daily basis and we make improvements as necessary. The NTOA Member Tested and Recommended rating means that you can purchase a Seer S1621 riot helmet with confidence that it will stand up to the daily duties of law enforcement officers. Every Seer Helmet including riot, motorcycle, mounted and corrections helmets are produced in the USA to meet the challenges of today's law enforcement officers. There may be other riot helmets on the market, but none of them have the NTOA SILVER Memeber Tested and Recommended rating.
